    Barnes' Notes on Genesis 8:15

    - XXVII. The Ark Was Evacuated

    19. משׁפחה mı̂shpāchah, "kind, clan, family." שׁפחה shı̂pchâh, "maid-servant; related: spread."

    20. מזבח mı̂zbēach, "altar; related: slay animals, sacrifice."

    21. עלה 'olâh, "whole burnt-offering." That which goes up. "Step; related: go up."

    Genesis 8:15-19

    The command to leave the ark is given and obeyed. As Noah did not enter, so neither does he leave the ark, without divine direction. "The fowl, the cattle, and the creeper." Here, again, these three classes are specified under the general head of every living tiring. They are again to multiply on the earth. "Every living thing." This evidently takes the place of the cattle mentioned before. "After their families." This word denotes their tribes. It is usually applied to families or clans.
